The P.A.C.E. Program – Tailored and Delivered In House
This involves three days of instructor led seminars and training delivered at your offices or a location of your choice. Our instructors work with your team to ensure the subjects may be tailored to suit your specific requirements while maintaining the integrity of the program. Our preference is for three consecutive days but training can be tailored, one day per week or every two weeks as an example.
- Selection of Instructor (by you, choice of three)
- Program is tailored
- Pre-qualification of students
- Assignments of one to two hours of expected student time may be given before the training
- Training, tests and assignments take place during the three days
- Students who fail a test/assignment in the program may re-take them on-line for up to three months
- Final testing, with our instructors via telephone or Internet, takes place within one day to a week after they successfully complete final module
- Certificates delivered. If possible, the instructor or another member of the ICPC will be present to present certificate designation.
- Graduates qualify for privileges such as discounts on products and services
- Encouraged to raise the bar and keep it high via special newsletter for CFCP Graduates
